Energy of the Moment

Life is constant energy, it never stops. If the energy of the moment is noticed it will allow much more understanding of your life than if you’re blindly controlled by habitual energy patterns…

If the energy of the moment isn’t seen, that’s when the habitual conditioned mind patterns take over; it’s just the process in place. You can be in a state where you’re happy and out of nowhere arises something that triggers one of your habitual conditioned patterns. Depending on the base of what arises determines if you’re still happy after what arises is attached to.

This is where everything arises from, feelings, emotions, sensations, and whatnot, hence the puppet on a string syndrome takes hold if the energy of the moment isn’t noticed.

I don’t say this in jest, I’m no different, although I do notice this energy a little more these days.

Here’s something to possibly assist in understanding the energy of the moment a little better. Make a commitment to sit for a certain time, say thirty seconds, keep it real. In those thirty second just watch what arises, watch the energy, a thought arising and just notice its energy. Just sitting, looking, acknowledging, noticing, letting it arise and pass; all of this is just the energy of each particular moment; this should assist in getting a better grasp on the moments energy. Increasing or decreasing the committed sitting time is up to the individual or don’t sit at all and remain a slave to the energy of the moment as it arises and habitually controls your life. It’s the energy of each moment that makes your life what it is and if this goes unnoticed so will most of your life…
